Yepp, it’s only a tree

I know. But it’s a good one too. A few minutes walk from the main car park. It’s free to park. If... read more

That Wanaka Tree has become icon as photographer's subject.
It can be stunning depending on the time of the day and season.
We were lucky to witness it firstly at 2.30pm and then on our return journey from town centre at 6.00pm when a guy was playing piano at the lakeside.
A photo opportunity not to be missed.

Well if you are coming to Wanaka the SW corner of the lake is a great place to visit and photograph this probably the most photographed tree in the South Island. Pity about the idiots wading out to get photographed hugging the tree

Nice view with the tree sticking out of the water. Worth a visit if on the way. If in a hurry or out if the way, I think you can give it a miss. Some paddlers might be in your frame but that's fine as it would be a good pic as well!

It wasn't too busy when we arrived to take our photo of the That Wanaka Tree. Beautiful area and great trails for exploring and of course, we took a lot of photos of "that Wanaka tree!"

Really enjoyed walking around Lake Wanaka, but that Tree - not desperately inspiring! Although loads of people seemed to be spending plenty of time photographing it. Many other of the lakes in NZ have similar examples by the way>
